Dedicated to the memory of Chico Mendes, Brazilian rain forest campaigner


AH - YEAH -
YES, HOW MANY - YEAH.

HOW MANY PEOPLE
STAND IN A LINE?
HOW MANY PEOPLE
NEVER GET A CHANCE TO SHINE?
IF YOU CAN TELL ME,
I'LL GLADLY LISTEN.
HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE DIED?

ONE TOO MANY RIGHT NOW FOR ME,
I WANNA BE HAPPY, I WANNA BE FREE, YEAH.
ONE TOO MANY RIGHT NOW FOR ME,
I WANNA SEE ORDINARY PEOPLE LIVING PEACEFULLY.

DOO, DOO, DOO,
DOO, DOO, DOO.

HOW MANY PEOPLE (ah-)
GO FOR A RIDE? (ah-)
HOW MANY PEOPLE (ah-)
NEVER MAKE IT THROUGH TO THE OTHER SIDE? (ah -)
IF YOU CAN TELL ME, (ah-)
I'LL GLADLY LISTEN, (ah-)
HOW MANY PEOPLE (ah) HAVE CRIED?

ONE TOO MANY RIGHT NOW FOR ME, YEH, FOR ME,
I WANNA BE HAPPY, I WANNA BE FREE, YEAH.
YEAH, WELL, ONE TOO MANY RIGHT NOW FOR ME.
I WANT TO SEE ORDINARY PEOPLE LIVING PEACEFULLY, YEAH-HEY-HEY.

DOO, DOO, DOO,
DOO, DOO, DOO,
UH, UH, UH, DOO, DOO.

OH NOW, HEY NOW, NOW, HEY NOW, NOW, HEY NOW, HEY!

HOW MANY PEOPLE (ah-)
WILL IT TAKE? (ah-)
HOW MANY PEOPLE (ah-)
FOR GOODNESS SAKE? (ah-)
HOW MANY PEOPLE? (ah-)
(Ah-)
HOW MANY PEOPLE? (ah-)
ONE TOO MANY! (ah-)
(Ah-)
ONE TOO MANY, RIGHT NOW! (ah-)

HOW MANY PEOPLE? (ah-)
ONE TOO MANY, RIGHT NOW! (ah-)
HOW MANY PEOPLE? (ah-)
ONE TOO MANY! (ah-)
HEY! HEY! (ah-)
WELL, HEY! HEY! (ah-)
ONE TOO MANY, RIGHT NOW! (ah-)
WELL, HEY! HEY! (ah-)
ONE TOO MANY, RIGHT NOW! (ah-)
HEY! HEY! (ah-)
